Call for 2014 workshop proposals

Dearest Swappers,

We’re a little more than three months from Epic Skill Swap 2014, and we most happily announce that the workshops submission tool is live!

This is the part where we all enter the workshops that we’d like to teach or see taught, and provide feedback on the options other people have suggested.

So, friends, tell us: what skill(s) would you like to swap? What makes you so excited that you razzle-dazzle at the idea of sharing or learning it? What sort of knowledge do you have that will help us create the world that we want? Continue reading

Last day to propose workshops for Epic Skill Swap April 14! (2013)

Dear everyone,

Just a loving reminder that the deadline to submit workshop proposals is April 14th! That’s coming right up on us. Have an idea of a skill to share? Interested in participating and want to cast your votes for workshops you’d love to attend? Scoot on over to, and add your idea and indicate your interest on proposed skills.

Just a lil’ taste of what’s already up there: yogurt making, basic household wiring, arts of the sailor, juggling, CPR, pipe soldering, life drawing, maps, suicide intervention, songwriting, and music theory. We’ll close the poll on April 14th, and try to have a schedule for you by April 30th.

Hooray for skills! Continue reading
